Old White Chalk Paint
This off-white gives the classic look of antique white and has been compared to the color of chalk. Depending on your piece, you might want to prime first to avoid any problems with wood tannins bleeding through. Go here to learn all about how to properly prep furniture for painting.

Old White distresses easily and mixes well with other paint colors to lighten them up. It’s great when you want a soft white look but not as crisp as Pure White. (Also see how it compares to Original white Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.)
How to Seal Old White Chalk Paint
To seal Old White Chalk Paint, apply Annie Sloan’s clear or white wax with a wax brush or lint-free cloth to keep the bright color. Sealing with brown or black wax will completely change the look of your piece. It’s always advised to apply clear wax first before using a dark wax color to control how dark the piece actually gets. You can then apply more clear wax on top to remove some of the darker wax.
